Post Offices

The Italian national, Poste Italiane, provides a bill-paying service (pagamento delle bollette) widely used for making regular payments for services: gas, water, electricity, telephone, insurance, rent, road tax, and television licence fees.

A pre-printed form (bollettino premarcarto) will arrive with the bill. This should include all payment details (if not, the name, address, and account number of the payee must be entered). The two-part form should be taken to the payments counter at the post office. The teller will keep half the form and stamp and return the other half.

Bill can also be paid by direct debit or via a bank account.
